Kitty & Puppy Haven

Kitty Haven was started in September 2000, and Puppy Haven was launched in January 2004. The haven is a registered non-profit organisation, with the main objective being the rehabilitation, socialisation, care and sheltering of injured, abused and abandoned cats, kittens, puppies and dogs.

The haven works mainly with animals from squatter camps, townships and other low-income areas, but it also gives veterinary clinics and other animal welfare organisations an outlet for unwanted animals without the need for euthanasia. Kitty & Puppy Haven aims to find new homes for pets once they have fully recovered. All animals leaving the shelter are fully vaccinated, parasitic control is implemented and they are either already sterilised or homed with a voucher for sterilisation when they reach the required age. The haven finds homes for around 60 puppies and 40 kittens monthly. They have about 100 animals under their care at any one time.  To help raise funds to run the sanctuary a dog and a cat shop has been established at the haven.

Kitty and Puppy Shelter

Kitty and Puppy Shelter is a non-profit, welfare organisation that receives no government funding. Merien Smidt recognised an on-going need for an animal welfare organisation that focused on the health of the animals. The shelter's primary aim was and still is to provide a healthy, safe and stress-free environment to aid the rehabilitation of the animals, as well as a beautiful and happy space, for animals and human visitors alike. The shelter has up to 40 volunteers working there, with 30 kittens at any one time. The shelter's number one aim is to sterilise, rehabilitate and re-home animals in a responsible way. The shelter has rescued and re-homed around 2 000 kittens, cats and puppies over the past five years.
